All a bit tense at Wentworth. Chris Wood bogeys 16 and now his lead over Rikard Karlberg, who is in the clubhouse at -8, is down to 2. Wood now has the 2 finishing par-5s to play -- and he's +1 for the week on those holes. Karlberg heads to the range to stay warm...

It's all going wrong for the chasing pack at Wentworth and Chris Wood recovers from his bogey at 10 with a birdie at the very next hole to move back to -12. His closest challenger, Rikard Karlberg, is in the clubhouse at -8, while of those still on the course, only Danny Willett and Julien Quesne at -7 are under-par for the day. It's certainly not over, but the fat lady is warming up her vocal chords...

Just like Danny Willett on Friday, Chris Wood shoots 29 to the turn then bogeys the 10th. Willett carded a full 10 more shots on the back-9 in round 2 -- if Wood does the same here there are a plenty waiting to pounce, with the likes of Willett, Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Y.E. Yang all within 4 shots of the lead.

Record-equalling 29 on the front 9 for Chris Wood and he leads the BMW PGA Championship by 3. The Englishman has experience at both ends of the scale at Wentworth. In 2010, he led by 2 after round 3 only to shoot 77 and finish T6. But all his Sunday rounds since then have been in the 60s -- including a 66 last year for a career-high 4th in this event.
